MANILA (UPDATED) - A woman was killed, while two others were injured after a motorcycle collided with a tanker at the Magallanes underpass on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.

The incident occurred around 4:30 p.m. The woman, who has yet to be identified, died on the spot.

Her husband, who was driving the motorcycle, and the truck driver, were injured in the incident.

It took rescuers almost two hours to reach the site due to heavy traffic caused by ongoing repairs in the southbound lane of the Magallanes overpass.

Investigation of the incident is ongoing. -- with reports and photo from Charie Villa and Maan Macapagal, ABS-CBN News
